Baby Ferouz released from detention

Some good news! Baby Ferouz, who was born in Brisbane to asylum seekers, then sent into detention in Darwin, has been released with his parents and siblings.

“Other Australian-born children of asylum seekers born in detention have been released in recent days, according to Ferouz’s lawyer, Maurice Blackburn senior associate Murray Watt.

Ferouz was at the centre of a high-profile legal battle in which the federal court upheld the Australian government’s decision that the infant was an “unauthorised maritime arrival” like his parents, despite being born in Brisbane’s Mater hospital in November 2013.”
